Caribbean New Frontier Foundation, a British charity aimed at empowering Caribbean youth with new and marketable skills is hosting a FREE culinary food training programme in west London under the name, ‘Caribbean Cultural Heritage Food Project’.

This twelve-week training activity is expected to take place at the Hammersmith and Fulham College (HFC), 9 Gliddon Rd, London W14 9BL under the supervision of Saint Lucian celebrity chef Chef Orlando Satchell also known as the Godfather of Caribbean cuisine and Dessert chef Shanese Phoenix from Barbados, both virtually. Chef Orlando will be assisted by Jamaican Chef Chef Ricardo a popular YouTuber, author and TV Personality.

This unique program is aiming to attract a limited number of young people of Caribbean heritage between the ages of 18 and 25 from the west London area, Acton, Shepherd’s Bush, Ruislip, Harrow, Ealing, and Greenford.

Kick-off for the training is set for early March 2023 at 20:00 or 8pm. Participants will be provided with branded aprons, access to the industry’s finest equipment including professional knife sets and a life-changing education that will teach them the difference between food and cuisine.

As Caribbean cuisine spans several dishes, participants will be required to prepare a breakfast meal, a lunch meal and a dessert. This process will be filmed every step of the way culminating in a cook-off in the presence of special guests including Caribbean High Commissioners, British government ministers and UK Hospitality executives in the TASTE Restaurant at HFC.

The closing date for expressions of interest is mid-February 2023.

Managing Director of the charity, David F. Roberts says, ‘Caribbean youngsters are among the many youth in Britain affected by the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the Ukraine / Russia war. This program is an effort to assist in providing opportunities and hope for those young people within the community with ambitious dreams but just need a helping hand.’

Caribbean Cultural Heritage Food Project is funded by The National Lottery Community Fund and supported by Jus’ Caribbean Group and CaribDirect Multi-Media Limited.
